Handwritten with love...

I’ve been catching up with my correspondence today, writing letters and organising my stash of stationary. I keep most of my bits and pieces in this plastic set of drawers, bought from Homebase. Never underestimate the home aisles of a DIY store.



I love clear drawers, solely because you can see everything you have and it’s easier to find stuff that way :)



So I’ve sorted everything out into drawers: stickers, tags and random bits and pieces...



I love nothing more than cute stationary and pretty tags, an obsession I seem to have never grown out of.



My other aids in letter writing include my trusty DYMO machine, a little bit dated now, but still works like a treat.



A stash of miniature pegs because there far too cute, and of course the final touch to a handwritten letter...



I keep all my addresses stored in here...



It's something I picked up in the January sales in Marks & Spencer, the box had been damaged, so this was knocked down to a £1. It sure does come in handy.

I was tagged in the Handwriting challenge by Nicola from Giddy Little Miss, and had been hoping to get tagged, as I love anything like this...



The rules were to write the following:
1. name and blog name
2. url
3. write 'a quick brown fox jumped over the lazy dog'
4. favourite quote
5. favourite song
6. favourite band(s), artist(s)
7. anything else you wish to say..


I tag-

Georgi from Little Dream Girl
Kat from Legs Eleven
And Little Rose Petals

  2. Ahhhh! I have been wanting clear acrylic drawers for my makeup for ages! I keep meaning to buy a few of them from Muji but I never get around to it.. I didn't know they had them in Homebase! They'll probably be cheaper than Muji too!

    The hand writing tag looks fun! I saw Helga Von Trollop did one too so.. I may do it!

    So many cutesy pretty things especially the mini pegs and the lucky cat! xxx
